My first thought when watching this video of a Spanish television show where Ricky Rubio appeared: Why don’t we have talk shows in America where there are puppets on stage helping/heckling the host? Sure, Triumph the Comic Dog was a start, but I think this show’s little alien creatures are the next logical evolution of Avenue Q.

My second thought: Why didn’t someone think of playing “Connect Four” with basketballs before.

My third thought: It must be a lot of fun to be Ricky Rubio.

Enjoy, and hat tip to NBA.com’s All Ball blog and Yahoo’s Ball Don’t Lie for finding this.
